Bolte School of Business Resources

Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business Mission Statement

The Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business, proudly integrated in a Catholic University, fosters the divine calling of business professionals who consider the dignity of the human person, who apply the highest standards of personal integrity, and who serve the common good.

In this context, the Bolte School builds innovative education programs, advances knowledge through quality scholarship, promotes responsible business practices, and develops future leaders who are ethical decision-makers and effective problem-solvers.

Ultimately, the Bolte School seeks to positively influence global communities by considering people as well as profits, morality as well as market-share, and service as well as self.
